The National Park Service is pleased to sponsor the seventh annual Maggie L. Walker Youth Summer Leadership Institute at the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site.

The Maggie L. Walker Youth Summer Leadership Institute is a two week experiential program for youth interested in developing leadership skills and in participating in community service projects. It is open at no cost to students ages 14-18 in the greater Richmond area. The program is designed to guide the development of the leadership skills in youth through discussion, lectures, field trips, and the opportunity to meet local and national leaders. Enhance your leadership skills through classroom discussions, peer mentoring activities, and forays out into the community while earning volunteer service hours.

The program meets weekdays Tuesday, July 5 through Thursday, July 14, 9am-2pm each day on site at Maggie L. Walker NHS. On Saturday, July 16, all participants will be invited to a graduation ceremony held in their honor during the annual Maggie L. Walker Birthday Celebration, where the students will be recognized for their accomplishments.

Applications are due May 6, 2016. Space is limited to 14 participants.
